It's Monday! What Are You Reading? & Mailbox Monday

Hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.  We share books that we've read over the past week and those we hope to read this week.

Last Week:
I finally had some more free time last week and gladly got quite a bit of reading accomplished (thank goodness for long weekends, eh?).
  • The Ladies of Missalonghi by Colleen McCullough (meh)
  • City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (fun)
  • Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion (uniquely awesome)
  • Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan (fantabulous!)
  • Divergent by Veronica Roth (amazing)
  • One Thousand White Women by Jim Fergus (great historical fiction)
This Week:

A lot of my holds at the library have gone through I have quite the little stack piled up.  Thus, I'll need to get those suckers out of the way first.  My reading plans:

Mailbox Monday is a touring meme where book bloggers share their bookish acquisitions from the week prior.  It is hosted this month by MariReads.

This week I acquired a hardcover copy of The Upright Piano Player courtesy of Doubleday

I also purchased two favorite books of mine: The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
